Toward Autonomous "Artificial Cells" in 2D

TYPEStatistical & Bio Seminar
Speaker:Roy Bar-Ziv
Affiliation:Weizmann Institute of Science
Location:Lidow Nathan Rosen (300)

We study the assembly of programmable quasi-2D DNA compartments as “artificial cells” from the individual cellular level to multicellular communication. We will describe recent progress toward autonomous synthesis and assembly of cellular machines, synchrony, pattern formation, fuzzy decision-making, and electric field manipulation of gene expression.
